*G« TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWt' FRIDAY, JULY 14, 1*M Senate Gives Okay To Reduced Budget By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower and Secretary of Defense Wilson have won their long battle to cut funds and target goals of the Air Force. Without a record vote, the Senate |> late yesterday shouted approva of a bill carrying $34,434,140,50 to operate the defense establish ment tor the fiscal year which be gan Juiy 1. The real tests had come earlle after lengthy and at times angr debate. First, by > 55-38, roll call, th Senate rejected an effort by Sen Maybank (D-SC) to give the Ai Force an additional 400 milio dollars to order 200 B47 Jet bomb ers, capable of delivering atom bombs. This was the big test, since i was the first to come to a vote Republican lines held firm agains the increase and they picked up 9 valuable Democratic votes to ad< to the 46 GOP ones. Voting fo: Maybank's amendment were 3 Democrats and I' Independent. If Maybank's move had suceed ed, other Democrats planne< amendments to restore more the five billion dollars cut from former President Truman's Force budget by the GOP admin Istration. Sen. Hayden (D-Ariz) lost 48-4 In an effort to add about 50 million dolars to step up pilot training ' He recaled that many Worlc War n pilots had been called back Into service in Korea and said Congress should train enough pilots to avoid this in the future. Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich), floor manager for the bill .said the Air Force should be able to turn out 8,300 new pilots this year in addition to some 47,000 now trained. Another Loss Not a change was made in the bill as it had been reported by the /Senate Appropriations Committee. The Senate upped the House totals for the Air Force by about 200 millions, for the Navy by 06 millons and for the Army by 31 millions. It offset this in part by chopping out 250 milions the House voted for a machine tools pool asked by Secretary Wilson. As the bill cleared the Senate it contained about 77 million more than the House voted. The Senate bill stil was more than 1 billion below Eisenhower's budget, more than 6 billons under the Truman requests and more than 12</ 2 bilions less than Con- gres voted* defense agencies last year. The funds are expected to result in a total military force of 3,356,000 by the end of next June, which wil be cut to 3,300,000 if a truce is reached in Korea. Thnt compares with a recent 3'/i million in uniform.

Last month Rhee threatened to wreck an armistice when he ordered the reJease of about 27,000 anti-Communist North Korean war prisoners.

Waillne Friday Rhee said he is "still waiting hopefully for word" from Washington that the agreement he reached with Robertson in Seoul last month has "not been sacrificed to the demands of the Communist enemy." "I must reiterate once again," Rhee said, "that we are struggling for survival as an independent, democratic nation.

LIVINGSTONE WASHINGTON I/PI —House leaders may try to force a showdown today or tomorrow on the Eisenhower administration's demand for higher postal rates.

Opening the meeting, Mr. Brogdon explained that fishing and hunting enthusiasts wanted only to maintain the present water leve: in the new bar pit and prevenl drainage of the property owned by the Game and Fish Commission without damaging any farm lands Landowners are not concerned about seepage of water in the summer, but only during the spring high levels, he said. The proposed draining of the new bar pit is to let the high water drain off during the spring, Mr. Brogdon pointed out. Submits Proposals In order to meet the farmers' needs and still save the area for hunting and fishing, Mr. Brogdon submitted three proposals which would keep enough water in the bi Rotarians Entertained By Young Singer Danny Cobb, Blytheville High School football and basketball player, entertained members of Blytheville's Rotary Club yesterday when he sang and accompanied himself on a ukelele. ~~ Young Cobb was introduced by W.

Phone To End August 6 LITTLE ROCK W — The Arkan- sns Public Service Commission will wind up Aug. 6 hearing on twin applications by Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. for permanent Intra- stnte rate increases of some $3,350,000. That date was set for cross examination of Bell witnesses who yesterday gave rebuttal testimony in support of the company's applications. us a compromise but a tragic and inal defeat." Shortly before issuing his bitter statement Rhee met for the third ime in three days with U. S. Am- basador Ellis O. Briggs. ROK Foreign Minister Pyun Yung Tai said he session was "very brief and not important. We only confirmed he cables which were exchanged, ome of which have been reported." Meeting Allied and Red liaison officers -net in a quickly called conference. These officers have the job, among ther things, of setting the meeting ime for the full truce teams. The liaison chiefs, with Marine Col. James C Murray leading the Allied side, might have checked work performed by staff officers. 'he liaison men serve as direct epresentatives of the top delegates. This conference opened an hour after a 2-hour special staff officer meeting led by Col. L. C. Fried- , rsdorff of Houston, Tex. j This group is understood to be napping plans for exchanging j icarly 100,000 war prisoners. The i ruce document says this must be j lone within 60 days of the ai;mi- j tice signing, so the operation must j et underway quickly after the cer ; monies. j The special staff body met with the Reds for the first time Thursday, and no time was set for another session at Friday's recess. | Prisoner exchange plans semed ; the last major busines still to be wrapped up before the truce signing date is fixed. Already, the Allies and Communists apparently have charted on maps the cease-fire line and agreed on the English, Chinese and North Korean language versions of, the bulky armistice document. HEADING FOR THE LAST ROUNDUP-One of the Jewi round barns left in the U. S. is this one at Geneseo, 111. Built in 5913, it is 60 feet high and 80 feet in diameter. The hayloft holds 120 tons and the barn can accommodate six carloads ofi yearling feeders. But owner Dewey Greene says the unusual shape doesn't permit efficient lose of the space. pit to run boats as rar south as the seven-mile bar pit, and would npt prevent the flow of water in the spring. . The plans include building low- water (i.e. ground level) dams at the Dildine crossing on the new bar pit, the north-south ditch where it runs into the Lon Watson ditch, and across laterals opening into the bar pit. Mr. Brogdon emphasized that ;hese suggestions are merely tentative and may be altered when consultations with the Game and Fish lommission-take place. It is understood that the drainage district las no objection to such dams. Col. Buxton told the group that 'ong-range plans for the area are still in the developing stage and will continue regardless of what he drainage district does. However, Col. Buxton pointed mt, the immediate problem is to ;ave the water there now before the entire area is drained by the new [itch. He felt the proper wp.v to do that is by means of the suggested low-water dams. The commission will go along with any reasonable projects, the colons indicated. The committee appointed la: night will also take up these pro.'- ects with the commission. ! Lake Filling In 3 The problems of Big Lake an the Sand Slough Dam also wer 3 aired at the meeting-. r As a result of a break in the dai : and several other breaks above if the lake almost drains each sun^ mer and mud and silt from drainage ditches in Missouri are filling the lake at the rate of about fiv :p inches a year, Joe Morton, Federa game warden, said. The breaks are repaired eac.3 year, he said, and as soon as above the dam are plugged, San' Slough will be replaced. It wouldn't do any good to ra place the dam until the break, above are fixed, Mr. Morton said.* He estimated that it will be fixetj by some time in September, bar,', ring rainy weather. j Another meeting of the grou] ; will be called, probably some tim. next month, when some deficit.' results have been attained.
